Nominate a Smoke Free Champion for Change
If you know someone who has played a significant role in promoting tobacco-free living, you can give them a pat on the back and nominate them for a Smoke Free Champions for Change Award.
These Interior Health Authority awards honour people who have made a difference in the lives of others by promoting smoke-free spaces, helping people quit smoking and preventing people from starting to smoke.
“A Smoke Free Champion for Change is someone who goes beyond their regular everyday work to reduce tobacco use and its harmful effects in their community,” said Trish Hill, senior tobacco reduction co-ordinator with the IHA.
Nominations close on April 13.
The Smoke Free Champions for Change awards are open to IHA staff and community members.
Nominating a champion is easy.
Nomination forms are available on the Interior Health Authority website here by clicking on the Smoke Free Champions link.
Forms can be submitted online, by fax to 250-505-7211 or by mail to Smoke Free Champions for Change, Nelson Health Unit, 2nd Floor, 333 Victoria St., Nelson, B.C., V1L 4K3.
Six champions will be announced and awarded $50 gift certificates on May 31, World No Tobacco Day.
Those who nominated the selected champions will also be eligible for prizes.
